Is it a SCSI cd-rom, or are you using the ide-scsi module? If the
former, I don't think there is an ioctl for the sr device for
ejection. If the latter, try switching to the `cdrom' module:

rmmod ide-scsi
modprobe cdrom

(I find its best to have both as modules rather than built-in, for
switching between cd playing and cd recording without a reboot).
